Come get lost in the cinematic Afro-futuristic soundscapes of Directors!
Directors began as an extension of the film score music of Jordan McLean and Amir Ziv. Expanding on the sounds of brass, electronics and percussion pioneered by these two composer/improvisers over the last 20 years, Directors' songs and other sonic explorations evoke contemplation and move bodies.
Vocalist Sahr Ngaujah employs a rich history in theater and film to deliver a unique vision of what a lead singer can communicate to an audience. Fellow frontman Jordan McLean uses multiple instruments to further decategorize the music while bassist/vocalist Nikhil P. Yerawadekar and guitarist/vocalist Ricardo Quinones bring an array of stylistic diversity to join with drummer Amir Ziv's unlimited creative technique.
Their breakout EP, ACTION!, will be available soon on System Dialing Records.
